Life is good. You got the better house. The better furniture. The better car. But, why haven’t you gotten better speakers yet?

With understated elegance, the Reserve line has a minimalist design with universal appeal. Inheriting Polk’s flagship transducer array, the speakers produce exceptional sound rivalling competitor speakers that sell for twice the price. Immerse yourself in your favourite musical recordings or your weekly movie night with the new Polk Reserve.


High Definition Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter

Over 40 years of tweeter innovation, design and prototyping has led to the development of the new 1” high definition Pinnacle ring radiator tweeter. Developed by Polk Audio, it delivers ultra-clear, crisp highs without unwanted coloration or distortions. The Pinnacle tweeter features a finely tuned waveguide that dramatically improves the dispersion of high frequency energy ensuring a broad “sweet spot” while the critically damped rear-chamber helps defeat any unwanted resonances. Hi-Res Audio certified, the Pinnacle Tweeter is designed for today’s two-channel music listening as well as multi-channel 3D audio found in movies, sports, and video game soundtracks.

Flagship Turbine Cone Design

Polk developed the Turbine cone specifically for our flagship products to ensure the natural reproduction of the mid-range, to which human ears are particularly sensitive. These Turbine cones combine Polk’s proprietary foam core and molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increase stiffness and damping, without adding mass. You will hear every detail and experience a smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass.

Power Port 2.0

Polk’s new Power Port 2.0 is the latest version of our successful Power Port technology. In addition to Power Port’s carefully engineered port design that smooths the flow of air as it exits the cabinet through the port, X-Port adds a set of closed-pipe absorbers that are specifically tuned to unwanted cabinet and port resonances. Together, these two technologies combine to function as Power Port 2.0 to deliver smooth, detailed audio. Combined with dual 8” woofers you’ll get louder, cleaner bass while minimizing turbulence and port noise.

Premium Cabinets Built for Better Performance

Polk believes cabinets should be beautiful and add nothing to the playback. Polk Reserve cabinets, braces, and internal enclosures are precisely engineered to minimize unwanted internal standing waves and eliminate unwanted resonances. Laser Doppler Vibrometer (LDV) designed, the advanced precision point to point braced cabinets with individual enclosures mid and low-frequency transducers combined with new Cabinet Resonance Control (CRC) eliminate unwanted panel resonances. The result is a cabinet that rigidly holds the transducer array while it faithfully reproduces recordings.

Height Module Compatible

These speakers can be used for the front stage of any home theatre as well as side and/or rear surrounds. To add immersive vertical sound, Reserve R900 height modules are compatible (R900 sold separately).

High-Resolution Audio Performance

Your sound is only as good as your source. With Hi-Res Audio certification, the Polk Reserve R700 delivers clear and detailed high-end response. Female vocals are particularly smooth, with exceptional clarity and without colouration. Plus, a minimum support of 40kHz perfectly reproduces the latest Hi-Res Audio files with improved audio extension.


"A very complete sound experience that makes me want to play more and more music, of all kinds."


"To create its Reserve Series, Polk Audio has leveraged technologies from its high-end Legend loudspeakers – including eye-catching Pinnacle tweeters and Turbine Cone drivers – while also introducing its first on-wall/on-cabinet height modules. A treat for system builders, the range has nine options, including a slim centre channel and three different floorstanders, timbre-matched to accommodate mix-and-match installs. The voicing favours neutral tonality, excellent detail retrieval and a smooth balanced bass response aided by Polk’s Power Port 2.0 venting technology – all attributes likely to set a home theatre fan’s pulse racing. While the Reserve Series’ understated design helps the speakers blend in to any room, its performance guarantees you’ll sit up and listen."


"I can still claim that the Reserve can measure up acoustically with more expensive systems, perhaps almost twice as expensive systems! Polk Reserve is highly recommended, even for those who may have budgeted for a higher total cost of speaker purchase."


"Excellent dynamics, expressive clarity and purity in the transmission of the mid-bass register, openness in the middle and the ability to build a luxurious airy soundstage - all this is achievable with a successful system selection. And for this, the R700, thanks to its modest price among commensurate competitors, will free up the maximum financial reserves for you."


„These are big, offensive floorstanders with impressive bass. They sound good with both solid-state and tube amps. Fast, impressive sound with lots of detail, energetic treble and uninhibited midrange. Phenomenal bass that ventures very low, with the punch of active subwoofers.”
